Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Simply spectacular! Rhododendron 'Red and Gold' is one of the finest variegated varieties you’ll find. The dark evergreen leaves are patterned with broad, irregular gold margins that make a most attractive shrub all year round. In early May, dense clusters of bright red, trumpet-shaped flowers create a show-stopping contrast with the colourful leaves. This eye-catching dwarf hybrid makes a superb feature plant for an exotic planting scheme on acid soil or grown as an impressive stand-alone specimen plant. Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 150cm (59").

Grow Rhododendrons in moist, well drained, acid soil that has been enriched with plenty of well rotted organic matter. Choose a position in semi or dappled shade with shelter from cold drying winds. Many dwarf Rhododendrons can cope with a sunny position provided that the soil remains reliably moist. Where soil conditions are alkaline, Rhododendron plants are best grown in patio containers, using a mix of ericaceous compost and a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Rhododendrons are surface rooting so it is important to avoid planting them too deeply.
Water Rhododendron plants regularly throughout the growing season. Where possible, use rainwater as the lime contained in tap water will reduce the acidity in the soil over time. Feed Rhododendrons in spring with a slow release fertiliser for acid-loving plants. Protect plants from cold winter winds. Border grown Rhododendrons will appreciate an autumn mulch to protect their shallow roots from winter cold. Take care not to mound the mulch too close to the stem as this may cause it to rot. If necessary, lightly prune Rhododendron plants in June to remove damaged shoots and restrict size.
